Ladies' Day Out


We had some special visitors for our stake conference this weekend. See if you can guess who they were from these photos. Last night was our stake conference meeting and it was WONDERFUL! We received a special apostolic blessing from our inspired Elder Holland. It is such a remarkable feeling to hear from an apostle of the Lord that the brethern know who we are and haven't forgotten about the saints in this faraway part of the world.

Today the Relief Society sisters got to go out on the town to show Sister Holland and Sister Caussee Souq Waqiff (try and say that three times fast!). What a fun day! As you can see, the ladies had a complete Doha experience.




We are so blessed, so happy to finally have an apostle visit our little Qatar, and the shopping trip was an extra special bonus. Elder Caussee is the first French general authority, and he serves in the European area presidency. His wife is so sweet, and Sister Holland is as dear in person as she is from the pulpit. Last night Abbey got hugged three times by Sister Holland (one of those hugs being sandwiched between me and Sister Holland) and once by Elder Holland. She said she will remember this the rest of her life. So will I!

That's amazing that you had to go all the way to Quatar to meet an apostle and his wife! I've never met the Hollands, but they seem like lovely, personable people. What a wonderful experience. I bet it was a nice to mingle with sisters. I'm so happy you were able to have such a nice day.

Oh that sounds lovely. What an incredible experience to have some personal time with the Hollands. I bet it really fired up your ward!
